Blessings of the Upright


Proverbs: Chapter 11 verse 11

Through the blessing of the upright

a city is exalted


by the mouth of the wicked

it is destroyed.


Just think right where you are, you can be a blessing to the city or town that you live in.  In your own community you can be a blessing, by praying and being in the love of Jesus day by day.  We are not all called to go out to be a prominent person in our community but by prayer and supplication we as Christians can make a great difference in the city around us.  Today let us pray for the place that we live in, for peace to prevail and for the mouth of the wicked to be cleansed.

So the above gives us food for thought to begin to pray for where-ever we are living at the moment.

We can pray for the people that live around us – for them to be nice to each other, to give help when needed especially to  the young Mums and Dads and the older people in the town.

Young people do not need us to interfere with their way of bringing up their children but we can at least pray for them to have wisdom in the decisions that they have to make in our ever changing world.

As for the older people in our town let us pray especially for good health for them and help given where they need it most.

These things are not too hard for us to do because some of us cannot just go out and alter things that we see need to be done in our towns but to pray is something special that as Christians we really need to be doing.

We shall see results of our prayer sometimes and that is a good thing to encourage us to carry on caring for the place where we are living.


May God Bless us today as we pray for the place where we are living at the moment.

* God Bless You *
